Are you confused about where to put the holds? Below are some layouts to guide you. We also have a great ROUTE-SETTING VIDEO. If, instead, you would like a personalized paint-by-numbers approach for where the holds go, check out our Hold Layout - Expert Consultation.
Down Climb Rings allow the climber to get down off the wall easily. It is especially important to include these on a children's wall to ensure that your young climber can safely and comfortably descend the wall. Below is an example of how to layout a staggered down climb route.
Below you will find several different examples of holds that we have laid out on different sizes of walls. These are meant to be a guide for you as an initial setup. Every wall should be climbed on and adjusted as necessary for the intended audience.
